no offense, and im sure everyone else will say this, but use the search button.

or at least tell us your price range, then id tell you personally what id get with that money. it may not be the most powerful or the best, but its what I would pick. (and im a noob kinda)

The point of a internet forum is to ask questions not to tell people to uise the search button..... seriously every question you have asked we could have said that to you.



now i would highly reccomend the go 3port sport... great mill for 114 dollars from amain. the ocm is a sweet buggy i hope you enjoy it.

somebody had to say it and thats the first time ive EVER told someone to use the search button, and im not at all trying in any way to be a dick, but theres LOTS of "what kind of engine to get" threads, i look through em too hoping to get an answer as to what my next engine will be, but all you get is 10 or 11 different people all saying a different engine.

thats why i asked for a price range, its A LOT easier to guide him that way. it really depends on what hes planning on doing with it. personally i have a .28, which i believe is mainly a truggy engine, in my mbx5 buggy and its insane power, almost too much because it damn near NEVER catches, its always spinning out, even at top speed.

and not to start an argument, but you gotta admit, my questions are pretty unique and probably cant be found in the search button.

to OP: you say youre "loving it". does that mean youve just watched people race and read the foums, or have you already owned a nitro rc car of your own? i dont know what kind your car is, i dont even know if its a nitro! if it isnt, i shouldnt be here...

you should go for what fits your budget. if you can wait then save up a couple dollars here and there till you get what you want but if you want to run already then figure out a budget and go for something that fits it

the go 3 port is a great beginner engine its easy on the budget and you wont get pissed if you blow it up from not being tuned. its easy to tune and as a decent amount of power.

well let me rephrase that the werks engines are a powerhouse with carb issues. they are great engines my freind runs one and he still is using the stock carb but everyone else i know switches to the os carb. i ran a novarossi p5 for 5 gallons and loved it. eveyrone told me it was going to be a pita to tune but i never had a issue with it. ill be buying a go 5 port for my truggy once i decide to order one
